    Kay-t's Note:

    A hearty sauce to serve over pasta. A perennial easy favorite of mine, and a great way to add protein to pasta meals. This comes from the Vegetarian Express Lane Cookbook by Sarah Fritschner. I typically make this w/o olives and parsley, but have tried it with up to a 1/4 cup parsley with delicious results. Can be vegan if cheese is omitted.

      VERY easy and quite good! I served it on cheese ravioli, so the feta did not add anything. I crushed the garlic instead of mincing it so that the garlic flavor was milder and the preparation was quicker.

      i knew this dish would be good from the ingredients but i was pleasantly surprised at the end result. this sauce had a very deep and rich yet simple flavor to it. it tasted very authentic to something that my grandmother from italy would make. i didnt use feta but did add just a few anchovies and i let it simmer for half the day on the lowest setting. it was very good and better yet; very simple to make. thanks for the delicious, nutritious and easy recipe.
